We seek highly talented faculty whose research and teaching will make transformative contributions to the major themes of 1) Health, Wellness, and Equity in Communities of Color and 2) Black and Indigenous Families and Communities, with a preferred emphasis on U.S. populations. Searches in the departments of Biology, Communication, Economics, Exercise and Sport Science, Psychology & Neuroscience, and Sociology will contribute to this initiative. Across these searches, we aspire to recruit faculty who are doing innovative, intersectional, and high impact work that will diversify and enhance our research, teaching, and public outreach missions.Within this cluster, the Department of Communication seeks a performance studies scholar with a focus on performance and racial equity, beginning July 1, 2021, pending approval. Successful candidates will demonstrate interest and expertise in specific areas of scholarly and/or creative research such as anti-racist performance, performance in activism and racial justice movements, performance as a means of documenting and representing black lives, and/or other areas of performance studies that engage with racial inequity and promote social justice. We would like to welcome a colleague who will build and extend the existing strengths of performance studies in the Department of Communication where current faculty are engaged in the critical and creative work of original performance development, analysis of social and political arenas, and immersive collaboration with communities and cultures to enhance our understanding of how we make and can remake our world daily.Responsibilities will include conducting original research, teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in performance studies, supervising doctoral students, developing performance studies curriculum, contributing to department and university leadership, engaging performance-based pedagogies, and leading a diverse undergraduate and graduate student body in the development of public performance projects. The department is committed to critical studies, the integration of practice and theory, and a broad range of performance-centered studies. UNC Performance-centered faculty benefit from relationships with the Southern Oral History Program, the Institute of African American Research, the Sonja Haynes Stone Center for Black Culture and History, and Carolina Performing Arts.Salary is competitive.Educational RequirementsPh.D. (or conferral during the 2020-21 academic year) in communication studies, or a related discipline, with a specialization in performance studies.Qualifications and ExperienceA successful candidate may engage in documentary performance, performance and oral history, and ethnographic performance, as well as scholar/performers who engage with gender and sexuality, queer theory, disability studies, citizenship and immigration, theatrical adaptation, performance art, community-based performance, and performance for social change.Equal Opportunity EmployerThe University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer.
